The Witness of John About Christ John 1:15-18

John 1:15 John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, 'He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.'" 16 And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

In this section of scripture we see the use of courtroom terms giving us the legal witness of John the Baptist about Jesus and who He is. We see that John talks about Jesus being the preeminent one and that we see all of God in Him. That He gives Grace whereas Moses gave the law which could only condemn. Lastly we see that Jesus is the one who explains to us who the Father is.
